Irrelevant, wild accusations
Tukai Lagonilakeba, Namaka, Nadi
Isireli Vesikula’s witch hunting, wild accusations, baseless and mere speculations are unrealistic cheap political propaganda specifically if coming from someone with an MBA and a Masters of Law. The iTaukei are not fools to again fall prey to your ill conceived claims and the and politics must not be allowed to rear its ugly head into our society. It will cause racial disharmony and hatred. It was a famous swan song of his SODELPA party’s pre and post 2014 election agendas, and it still is. Perhaps Vesikula might want to go further and explain the land grab situation from the Nakauvadra Range in the Ra province and have it reported to the Minister for iTaukei Affairs or to the general manager iTLTB to verify if the land has been illegally converted.
His article in the Fiji Times’ Nai Lalakai May 11 edition also claimed of gold being found under the Nakauvadra ranges, but not backed up by a special geologist report.
It will just make those natives of Ra to sit back and dream aimlessly for the gold bullions to arrive similar to what those Kelekeletabua followers had experienced in the past awaiting the arrival of their container loads of the billions that never eventuated. Is this another false alarm enough to brainwash those naive Ra landowners that are being used as SODELPA’s political pawns?
All right thinking Fijians must counter Isireli’s wild accusations and his land allegations because it holds no place in society and our modern Fiji. Maybe, the learned Vesikula might want to be reminded that the iTaukei still owns 91 per cent of the total land area in our Republic, but we are the losers in that 80 per cent of the land have been lying idle since time immemorial and unproductive. But he can involve himself in with our various landowning units to manage their resources better instead of a useless wild goose chase. Please come out with solutions that are progressive, beneficial and positive to our marginalised indigenous Fijians.
